    Hire responsible adults motivated by winning. Management by criticism and fear is not fun. Management by hanging sweet carrots it!

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are okay. I really like most of thier managers.

    Cons

    They have third party vendors handling Human Resources

    Advice to Management

    Don't let outside companies handle your Human Resources. It make it hard to find answer on company benefits and possible problems you are facing in the field.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits good. Ride days are a check the box event. If you are willing to network hard and step on others to climb the ladder to a new title you will go far.

    Cons

    Management is hands off until upper management creates a panic. Intelligent managers are far and few between. Management turn over is very high.

    Advice to Management

    Polish your resumes. The real world is coming for you soon.
